A fabulous detached 2/4 bedroomed period cottage nestled in large grounds of approx. 1/2 acre with various outbuildings, pleasantly located on the fringes of Thorley village and backing on to open fields.
This stone built cottage dates back to 1762 and offers an abundance of character. Beyond the deep stone façade there are exposed beams, back to back inglenook fireplaces within the reception rooms and inset window seats. A quaint porch leads into the vestibule which is open both sides to the dining room with kitchen/breakfast room off and the living room with study and bathroom off. Two separate staircases rise from the reception rooms to the first floor where there are two double bedrooms, one with an ensuite dressing room area and two further staircases rising to two attic rooms/bedrooms. This property could be an exquisite country home following a sympathetic renovation.
The cottage is situated on the fringes of the rural, West Wight village of Thorley – only about 1.5 miles to the east of Yarmouth. This popular and bustling harbour town offers a good selection of local shops, pubs and restaurants along with a frequent car ferry service to Lymington. There are plenty of countryside walks close by as well as many cycle routes.
